We all know that having two Wi-Fi routers in the house is ideal, but what happens when you already have one router and you’ve bought another Mi Home device. That, you’d also like to add another Mi Home speaker to your same WiFi network.
That’s why we have this article to help you out. In this article, we’ll show you how to connect a second Mi Smart Speaker to the same WiFi network. This way, both devices will share the same internet connection and you won’t have to set up a new router every time you add a new device.
What can be the problem when we connect two smart speakers to the same wifi network?
When you connect a smart speaker to your wifi network, it creates its own little mesh network. This means that you can play music from any smart speaker in your home. The same is also true for other smart speakers that are connected to the same wifi network.
The problem is that when you connect two smart speakers to the same wifi network and ask them to play the same song, they will both start playing the same song on two different speakers. That defeats the purpose of having two speakers. The solution is to play each song on a different speaker.
Moreover, if you have two smart speakers on the same network, you’re basically doubling the amount of time they spend listening to you. When one smart speaker is listening to music, the other one is also listening.
